Gold Coast, Bagan Lalang?

Did you know that Bagan Lalang is now called Goldcoast????... sheesh!!! how original wan......

Anyway a bunch of us vw beetle owners and a few other classic car owners took a drive to Bagan Lalang last Sunday.... oh wait do you guys even know where Bagan Lalang is? :) Well, if you dont,.. it is a coastal area just after Sepang Town.... Dont know where Sepang is? ... You know F1 Sepang Circuit right?...... aaaaaa thats right! its some what a whiles way from there...

It was such a hot day... but of cos it rained like nobodies business later in the evening... luckily i was already back home by then....

i have visited Bagan Lalang almost a decade ago.... and boy has it changed.... it used to be a nice quiet place .... the beach wasnt that great but broad ...and the water was not too nice either.... but it was a great place for a picnic...... there was a restaurant there which was famous for its 'Ikan Bakar' (Grilled Fish) and the sea food wasnt bad either....

So yeah ... now ...almost ten years later.... they are calling it Goldcoast.... and they are building a stretch of water villas on stilts...... there goes the neighbourhood lah.... the place was packed with visitors .... the roads are alot better now but its jammed with cars... maybe it was packed because it was a sunday...... there are alot of new stalls and food courts along the stretch.... but the food really sucked!!! this is according to others lah because my food never came... but somehow i wasnt to hungry even thought i didnt have breakfast either... .... .... sigh!!! it was sad lah... i really hope this place is not ruined further by stupid humans who only know how to leave rubbish wherever they go......


I only noticed that plastic bottle after view this on the screen...sheesh!!


The piling being laid out for the Palm Tree Resort.... sigh!!



There was something serene but disturbing about watching this kite fly.... i cant seem to pin point it........ but it sure did remained me of someone........ Fi.... this one's for you....

an illustration of the The Gold Coast Palm Tree Resort once its completed.... hmmmm doesnt look like that Dubai thing right.....


below is a slideshow of the BUGgers & AMC club drive to Bagan Lalang.......

So as I was clicking on your blog and waiting for the page to load, I was thinking, Hmm... maybe I should leave a comment for Mo demanding that he dedicates a picture to me now. Hell, I bloody deserve it now don't I???

So then your blog page fully loaded. Was reading it then came to the picture of the rainbow kite and thought, Wow! Gorgeous picture. I love the contrast of the colourful rainbow kite set against the dull background and how the focus was on the kite and everything else was blurred.

Only then did I read what you wrote.

Awwwwww........

That kite photo is beautiful. What lens did you use, and how far was the kite away from you?

SAB: Yeah i know so dumb lah...

Yee Wei: Its a 70-300mm Nikon ED type D lense... taken at max zoom. programed mode f5.6, 1/1600s

but of cos the photo has been worked on... highlights and contrast increased.
